You got all the chips in the middle with KK preflop and got called, so it worked out. Nh.
If you want to know how to get away from KK when someone has AA, you can quit playing poker. Outside of that, you'll get into that situation over and over, and you will have the reverse situation, where you have AA and run into KK. And sometimes when you have AA you'll lose, and sometimes when you have KK you'll win.
It's not worth wasting time thinking about it.
I specifically asked in the beginning of the post for no flaming. I see that is something either skipped over or disregarded entirely before deciding to devote your time to this thread. Though I attempted to respond to your initial negativity sincerely, you chose to move right past it to another confrontational reply which provided no response to the original post and instead added trash to a thread that has proven to be, for my needs, useful.
I asked you for your opinion in regards to this situation as I spelled out. I did not go into detail specifically
because the question was general
. I stated this situation was hypothetical
, I told you what position I was in, what stage of the tournament I was in, the type of buy-in the tournament was, but did not tell you chipstacks because I found it to be irrelevant as it was at the early stage of the tournament. If that is not "in the correct format" for you, I apologize and ask that you simply ignore this thread.
Additionally, if you wish to create specific criteria which you insist I do not meet
for my intention, I also probably do not qualify for a "bad beat/cooler" thread because nowhere do I look for empathy, state my emotions after the loss (which I also don't specify occurring), or otherwise generally moan about poker. I simply state what the odds
indicate will happen. Before you respond again to this, or any of my threads I may create, consider the fact that I probably have the best of intentions and choose to respond from there. Otherwise, don't waste your or my time by responding in a negative light.
For the rest of you who have provided useful information, I thank you. Clearly enough information was given to at least present a work-able theory and I have learned something from it. baudib1, I will agree with you on this much: perhaps I am over-thinking the KK v. AA scenario and need to just accept that it is part of the game.
Good luck out there!
